Leah-Ann is right on with this one. If a patient has had the signs/symptoms of the flu for more that a couple of days, we don't treat it, only treat the symptoms. It will last 7-10 days and go away, leaving you feeling like you have been run over by a train. So, eat healthy food, drink lots of fluids, take ibuprofen or tylenol three times a day for fever/pain, and get plenty of rest. Tea is great, as is the old Chicken Soup RX. Mostly, time, though. Sorry there isn't a cure yet. Even the "prescriptions" for this don't cure it, only shorten its' time.
